One of the main compounds of the Hemimorphite stone is zinc. This is what gives it the blue, green, bluish-green colors. It also is often combined with the calamine stone as well. Hemimorphite is wonderful for drawing out negative vibrations from a person. It is best to place it at the feet or worn inside the sock for this. It removes Negativity as it draws from the body. It allows the negativity to go back into the ground. A good stone for helping one to bond with the spiritual. It offers much uplifting. Also helps open the heart chakra for giving and receiving.
